In brief: No

Most women don't lose weight consistently in the third trimester. Some women may gain 2-3 pounds one week and the next week be down 1-2 pounds, this can be very normal.
Continued weight loss is more concerning. However, women who are overweight or obese before becoming pregnant may be advised by their doctor to not gain as much weight during pregnancy (maybe only 15 pounds).
